Student Representation is an important part of ensuring the academic progress and success of our members and the development of courses. Reps will communicate with and support their peers, completing the feedback loop and thinking critically and creatively about the future of academic experience. Here at UoG we have 2 layers of the student representation scheme, course reps and subject reps.
What is a Course Rep?
Course Reps are at the forefront of the Academic Representation system, working to create positive change so that every student at UoG has an effective, fulfilling academic experience. A Course Rep’s role is to gather feedback, ideas and issues from their peers from their course to take forward to meetings, Rep forums and to the relevant University and Students’ Union staff.
They will work closely with their Subject Rep to play a part in creating an effective, fulfilling academic experience for every student at the University of Gloucestershire. Course Reps are supported by academics and Students’ Union staff, the SU Education Officer and their Subject Rep.
What is a Subject Rep?
Subject Reps oversee the work of the Course Reps within their subject community and support them in their role. They will attend various committees and meetings and should encourage their Course Reps to attend the necessary events, including Rep Forums.
The role works actively and enhance a more effective approach to teaching, learning and the wider student experience. It also contributes to the shaping of all aspects of the student experience, both academic and non-academic.
All student representatives are highly valued by the University, the Students’ Union and the students they represent.
